Josh McGuire Records First Victory of 2010 in Thunder
Forty at Skyline; Big Doubleheader Ahead!
(GRAYSON, KENTUCKY) The Josh McGuire Racing (JMR) team
reached victory lane for the first time in 2010 on Friday night, April
30 at the Skyline Speedway in Stewart, Ohio! Josh McGuire, who sports
a very high win percentage at Skyline, swept the night's racing program.
After laying down the quickest lap in qualifying and winning his heat
race, Josh led flag-to-flag in the unsanctioned 'Thunder Forty' to
claim the $2,000 winner's check. The Grayson, Kentucky native took
the loot back to the Commonwealth of Kentucky after defeating Chris
Garnes, K.C. Burdette, Larry Bond, and Chris Carpenter.
The #41 team was then slated to invade the K-C Raceway
in Chillicothe, Ohio on Saturday evening, May 1. The O'Reilly All
Star Late Model Series (ASLMS) was scheduled to sanction the $10,000
to win 'Dirt Track World Cup Classic,' but Mother Nature had other
ideas and the 75-lap race was postponed due to rain. You can view

"Skyline has been very good to me in the past and
Friday night was no different," quoted McGuire earlier this week
via telephone. "Our C.J. Rayburn car was phenomenal all night
long and I have to thank him for building us a great racecar. It is
a new car and I figured there was no better place than Skyline to
shake it down. We needed this win and hopefully it gives us some confidence
heading into Rocky Top and 201 this weekend!"
The team has now set their sights on a pair of unsanctioned
races this upcoming weekend (May 7-8) in the states of Ohio and Kentucky.
The Rocky Top Raceway in Coal Grove, Ohio will play host to a $5,000
to win event on Friday night, while the 201 Speedway in Sitka, Kentucky
will hold a $3,000 to win show on Saturday evening. Josh has found
success at both venues throughout his career, so look for "Bad
Fast" to be up front this weekend! Additional information on
the doubleheader weekend can be obtained online at www.rockytopraceway.net
